Eye am so sorry…

I know that I was supposed to share a
vintage trunk refinish,
but it seems I’m an accident waiting to happen.

Yesterday, my sweet baby girl
accidentally got me in the eye with her fingernail
and removed a section of my cornea.
Gross, right?
You have no idea. 
No worries though.
The ER doc made it go away.
The pain comes back every few hours 
but I just hit it with my magic eyedrops.
I’m working with about 25% less vision
than I had on Saturday.
the cornea heals pretty quickly
and I can now (barely) handle the bright light
of a computer screen.
But sadly, 
there is permanent eye damage
because of the extensive abrasion. 
that being said,
I’m sharing a back up post 
with you this week…
I’ll put it together tomorrow morning
after my optometrist appointment. 
Thanks for listening.
On a positive note,
I’ve reached 200 followers!
Thank you so much.
A hug to each of you.

  6. I’m glad that your ok, I had to touch me eyes reading this one. I wear glasses and can’t see without them, so when it comes vision and seeing…I don’t play around one bit.
    Congratulations on reaching 200

    Oh no! That sounds so painful~ just reading your post made my eyes hurt. (Sympathy pains, I guess!) The eyes are so sensitive, I can’t even imagine how much that hurt!

    Now, on reaching the 200 mark, CONGRATULATIONS! :)

    I am going to be praying for that eye of yours, Jami! I hope it heals quickly!

    Blessings to you,

  14. Oh, that is an unfortunate accident. I used to be a nurse, and recall several patients with cornea abrasions. Painful and unpleasant. Wishing you a speedy recovery!

  15. Megan says:

    Congrats on 200!!!

    and Im so sorry to hear about your eye :( how scary and painful. I hope the pain goes away quickly and the damage is not extensive.

  16. My Yellow House says:

    Hi Jami!
    For heaven’s sake….stay off this computer while it heals! :) I recently had a corneal ulcer and the pain was indescribable…I am so sorry for you. Take it easy.

    Did you get my email……I LOVE LOVE LOVE the bag! :)

  17. Lisa says:

    Jami, I’m so sorry about your eye. I’m wishing you a speedy recovery.

  18. Dear Jami–Ouch! That sounds so painful! I’m glad you were able to get to the doctor quickly, and that he had “magic eye drops” for you! I’ll pray for your eye. My 23 year old son had a scratch on his cornea when he was 3 and there was no permanent damage. Praying the same for you.

    Congratulations on your 200th follower!

  19. Allison says:

    I just read about your eye! You poor thing! I hope you feel better real soon. Take care of yourself.
